Yoon Mi was exhausted. She had just come from the basketball courts, where she had been playing a fiercely intense one-on-one match with her brother, and she was worn out. Sweaty and defeated, the teen stomped through the hotel lobby unhappily.
”I can’t believe you beat me,” she complained to her brother, who was smug with pride. ”If it weren’t for these shoes, though, I definitely would have won.”
Dae Kyung laughed and pressed the button for the elevator. They would have normally taken the stairs, but both of them were far too tuckered out from their recent match to even move an inch. ”Maybe you should go get some work-out shoes that aren’t two sizes too small, then,” the boy teased. Yoon Mi stuck her tongue out and turned away. She didn’t like losing, especially to Dae Kyung. She would not be happy with him for the next few hours, that was for sure.
Just as the elevator door dinged open, Yoon Mi realized that she had left something at the basketball court. Something important. ”Oh! I left my phone on the court,” she said. Dae Kyung rolled his eyes and got in the elevator regardless. It was clear to Yoon Mi that he was not coming with her. Sighing, she turned to begin the treacherous walk all the way back to the basketball court when she saw him.
He was beautiful. She said that about a lot of boys, but no, he really was. Yoon Mi’s breath caught at the sight of him, and with the phone completely forgotten, she knew that she just had to introduce herself.
She made a move to walk over to the couch he was seated at, his eyes glued to his laptop screen, but then she remembered something – she was in basketball shorts. And her forehead was shiny with perspiration. And her hair was up in the messiest bun ever known to mankind. Yoon Mi struggled inwardly for at least a minute as she outweighed the pros and cons of approaching this ridiculously cute boy: she could go say hi and risk making a bad first impression, or she could go freshen up first and risk the possibility of him being gone when she came back. She had no idea what to do.
Eventually, she just decided to go for it. She figured she’d be more miserable regretting not talking to him than regretting talking to him. She took a deep breath, sniffed her armpits to make sure she was good odor-wise, and slowly walked over towards the couches.
As she got closer, she got more and more excited. Yoon Mi loved cute boys. Cute boys were her favorite things. And this boy was very cute indeed.
When she was about a foot away from him, she tried to think of what she could say to him to get the conversation started. What she settled on wasn’t her best, but by the time she realized how annoying she probably sounded, it was too late.
”Is that one of those new laptops?” she asked. ”Those are so cool; I wanted one for my birthday but my parents said I didn’t need it. I’m Yoon Mi, by the way.”
She sincerely hoped she didn't sound desperate and nosy. That wouldn't make her first impression any better than it already was.
WOOOO yeah um sorry this kind of sucks but whatevs. :P

Dae Seok sat on the edge of his bed, staring blankly at the wall in front of him. He was bored. He hadn’t gone to school today, because, quite frankly, there was nothing of real value going to school could teach him that he couldn’t get from reading the textbook. That, and he had a feeling that some boys from another class were out to get him. It was a shame too, because Dae Seok really did like school. Even if it posed no challenge for him, he would still like to go........that is if the other kids would stop giving him a hard time.
Sighing, Dae Seok pushed himself up from his bed, and walked over to his desk. With nothing better to do, Dae Seok figured he would pack his things, and go to the hotel and wait for Eun Ae to show up for work. Maybe he could work on a blog post while he was there too. Neatly packing his things away in his bag, Dae Seok slipped his brand new laptop into it’s sleeve and put on his backpack. The laptop was a gift from his parents, who promised to buy him something nice if he went to school for a month straight. He would have done it without the bribe if they had just told him to go to school, but hey, if he could get a brand new laptop out of them, why not?
He bid his mom, and sister goodbye before walking out the front door and down the sidewalk, toward the hotel. He could have asked his sister to drop him off, or taken the bus, but Dae Seok liked the walk, it gave him time to think about things, and sort out what he wanted to write about in his blog post. Time went by a lot faster when he was concentrating on something, because before he knew it, Dae Seok was walking through the front doors of the Kensington Resort. Taking a seat on an empty couch, he took off his backpack and put it down on the floor next to him. Already here, and he didn’t have a topic for his post picked yet. Oh well, maybe actually looking at his blog would inspire something.
His laptop out, and open to his blog, Dae Seok stared at the screen deep in thought. So deep in fact, he didn’t notice that a girl, about his age, was approaching him from across the lobby.
”Is that one of those new laptops? Those are so cool; I wanted one for my birthday but my parents said I didn’t need it. I’m Yoon Mi, by the way.”
Dae Seok jumped slightly, and automatically closed his laptop when he heard her voice. He didn’t expect anyone to be this close to him. Closing his laptop was a reflex when he heard any voice that didn’t belong to Eun Ae. It wasn’t that he didn’t want people to to see what he was doing, he just had issues with people watching him as he wrote.
“I-I’m sorry. You scared me a little.” he said, turning to face the girl. She was cute, in a little kid sort of way. Round face, straight hair....she was definitely someone’s type. Lots of someones probably. “Yoon Mi? That’s a nice name.” The smile was real, but the polite tone was more out of courtesy, and the fact he didn’t want to scare her. “Nice to meet you Yoon Mi. I’m Dae Seok. Kyung Dae Seok. And yes, this is a new laptop. My parents actually got it for me just recently.”
The boy jumped and closed his laptop in surprise. Yoon Mi tried not to wince, but that was never a good sign. Dae Kyung was always telling her to stop being so frighteningly loud. She always forgot to try and tone down her enthusiasm around new people.
“I-I’m sorry. You scared me a little,” the boy said. Yoon Mi tried not to get too excited over how well his voice matched his appearance. She briefly wondered what he had been doing on the computer that caused him to act so defensively…was he watching porn or something? Stalking someone on Facebook? Reading fanfiction?
The boy smiled, and Yoon Mi gave up on figuring out his motives because his smile was so pretty. She grinned in return. That smile was contagious. “Yoon Mi? That’s a nice name. Nice to meet you, Yoon Mi. I’m Dae Seok. Kyung Dae Seok. And yes, this is a new laptop. My parents actually got it for me just recently.”
Yoon Mi went into excitement overdrive and started spitting out a reply, completely oblivious to how obnoxious she must have sounded at that moment. Dae Seok seemed like a nice guy, though, so in her mind it hardly mattered. Besides, her first words had already ruined any chances of coming across as one of those calm, cool and collected girls. Not that she had a chance in the first place…but still.
“Kyung Dae Seok…” she repeated. “Oh, wow! My brother’s name is Dae Kyung! How weird. It’s nice to meet you too; do you know how much that laptop cost? I actually might try to save up for one myself.”
She really was trying to save up for a new laptop, but in reality she probably would never buy one. If she ended up getting one it would be because her parents caved and got it for her, not because she was actually hoarding her money or anything. It was nearly impossible for Yoon Mi to save up money. She was a compulsive shopper, and she went shopping pretty often.
Just last month she had bought three new pairs of basketball shorts, one that she was wearing now, and her phone bill was stacked up pretty high due to all the apps and games she purchased. But that was beside the point…she wanted that laptop. It was pretty. Her current one was old and slow – her parents were crazy if they didn’t think she needed an upgrade.
“Oh, and I’m sorry for scaring you,” she added after realizing that she hadn’t apologized. “I can be a bit…enthusiastic sometimes,” she said with a slight chuckle.
